This needs more notes. 37k is not enough
this is a post that deserves to be broken. One day I would like nothing more than too see this has too many notes.

Heirloom beans planted Sunday, Oct.12th
Seven days ago, I planted 2 seeds in each hole - 3 rows of Rio Zape beans (Hopi beans) and 3 rows of Midnight Black Turtle Beans from Rancho Gordo. Seven days!
I bought the beans after reading Steve Sando’s book and getting excited about growing heirloom beans. They did not disappoint, every one of these bad boys sprouted-and look at them grow!
I was very lucky to have horticulture as an elective in my high school. If I hadn’t had that trade course, I probably wouldn’t have ended up being employed in a greenhouse after school, and thus really getting into gardening in my late teens.
If I had discovered this passion even earlier, I probably wouldn’t have ended up with a useless anthropology degree!
I can’t imagine my life without horticulture now.
